Pit Bulls (usually a variety of mixed dogs) ... are the most intelligent, loving dogs and deserve better than humans. Some of us are awesome in trying to get the message out about them. I do see changes. It is truly wonderful what changes we can bring about by organizing and talking back to ignorant and uncaring people. We have to fight the mean and ignorant who vilify these wonderful dogs and condemn them.

Thank you Angelica Maria Almeyda! Inti Duce is a angel (although sometimes quite a handful :), I can't imagine our life without him, in the current situation at his previous shelter I'm not sure he would have ever made it to us. What more can we do? Please let us know...

Signed. It's ridiculous that they've leapt backwards like that thanks to that jerk. Only those who truly care about animal welfare, and not just pragmatic money saving schemes should be given such a responsibility. Really hope this petition convinces them to drop him!
Also, please also sign and share this if you believe animals should not be tortured and killed for their fur; it looks much better on them, anyway! However futile it may seem, we've gotta do what we can - lives are depending on...

I encourage all residents of Douglas County to sign this petition. I was removed from the Animal Control Advisory Board in Douglas County on February 5th for speaking out against Rick Smith and his regressive anti animal welfare agenda. Rick Smith's agenda of animal control first and always to the detriment and death of healthy adoptable animals must be stopped. Rick Smith needs to be stopped and the people of the community are the only ones capable of making that happen. Rick Smith needs to...

Rick Smith's agenda of animal control first and always to the detriment and death of healthy adoptable animals must be stopped. Rick Smith needs to be stopped and the people of the community are the only ones capable of making that happen. Rick Smith needs to be shown the door, before his record of killing animals in Douglas county rivals his record while in St. Joseph Missouri. The county commissioners of Douglas county need to be made aware that they will be held accountable by the people and they will answer for the gross negligence of hiring this man and allowing him to continue in employment if they do not immediately rectify their mistake. This issue is not going to die. The only thing that is going to die are countless animals who will be sacrificed while politicians play political football with the issue of shelter animals lives and their refusal to admit to their mistake.

Justin, let me correct you, the commissioners are the ones that hired this man. Smith was not "voted in", and the citizens of Douglas County DID NOT have any say in the matter.

Donna but the people that picked him for the position comes from a elected position, so technically he was voted indirectly..

I haven't seen anyone on here volunteer their time for these precious animals and give a crap about them their well being. Its easy to give your opinion on something after the fact. I bet most of the people who signed this cause never even stepped dot into the animal shelter in douglas county.. I've been many times over the last 15 years and even volunteered my own time to help clean the cages and feed the animals..

If the Elected Officials in every County would Pass & Enforce The Spay & Neuter Law it would Prevent all these Fur Kids from being born & Over Populated! It's TIME Over Due that people have Character & Morals & Stand Up for these Voiceless Fur babies!

I am so saddened to hear of this turn of events at the Douglas County shelter. It is imperative that shelters have a positive partnership with volunteers and rescue organizations for the sake of the animals; any county wishing to run a progressive, humane shelter should ensure that AC directors have pro-animal philosophies and that they work cooperatively with volunteers and rescuers. I truly hope that the Douglas County Board of Commissioners will take notice and make pro-animal changes in leadership at the shelter.
